  • Sediment Lost

    Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research
    This layer depicts estimated sediment/soil loss across New Zealand and was created using the NZeem erosion model. Erosion control is defined as the prevention of soil loss by an ecosystem. NZeem has been calibrated from sediment discharges measured in New Zealand rivers (Dymond et al., 2010). This model estimates the long-term mean erosion rate from all...

  • NZLRI Erosion Type and Severity

    Manaaki Whenua – Landcare Research
    The NZLRI is a spatial database containing about 100,000 polygons (map units), each of which describes a parcel of land in terms of five characteristics or attributes (rock, soil, slope, erosion, vegetation). This layer represents a GIS dissolve on the erosion attribute of the NZLRI.

  • Wellington City Corrosion Zone

    Wellington City Council
    Wellington City Corrosion Zone as determined by NZS 3604:2011. Corrosion Zones relate to the severity of exposure to wind-driven salt, with B being low risk, C medium risk and D high risk (Category A is not applicable in New Zealand). The Wellington City territory authority area is located in zone C aside from the coastal zone. For this reason the...

  • NZ Coastal classification Beach exposure

    National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research Limited
    Service Description: Exposure – the degree to which the shoreline is exposed to wave and swell energy. This variable is further described by 4 attributes: sheltered, exposed, sheltered pocket beach and exposed pocket beach. The geomorphic variables were sourced from the New Zealand coastal type classification scheme and GIS mapping procedures that...

  • Coastal Hazard Overlay

    Gisborne District Council
    Coastal hazards occur when a natural process has adverse effects on human safety, property or on objects or areas that are valued by humans, or when human activities generate anomalies in natural processes, causing those processes to act in unforeseen ways. Human responses to such hazards may, in turn, have other adverse effects on the environment and on...
